  • What's New!

    We are beginning the 2016-2017 with a new design of the Baychester Academy website. This year, we have added a few changes to make it easier for our families to have access to up-to-date information about our school.

Principal's Message

Baychester Academy Community, 

It is my great pleasure to serve as  the principal of Baychester Academy since 2009. My teaching experience began at Public School 87 located just a few blocks from Baychester Academy in 1993.
Baychester Academy is a very special school to our community.
Our school's mission is to ensure that our students are prepared to meet the challenges of the future.

Baychester Academy’s Mantra:
Every day I am…
Actively learning
Seeking creative solutions
Taking time to help others
Exuding optimism
Driven to find a better way

These words embody the intention and beliefs that are at the heart of our school’s mission and vision.
Baychester Academy provides students with opportunities to expand and grow in the classroom as productive citizens. By educating the whole child through rigorous academics and the arts, students get access to a broad range of subjects that include Reading, Writing, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, Music, Visual Arts, and Dance.
We believe that these interconnected subjects and learning opportunities will encourage each child to develop their strengths which will allow them to achieve success in middle school, high school, and college.
We encourage you to utilize the resources of this website which include our monthly calendars, Math Engage New York supports, our MyOn Reading portal, and class webpages.
